The Milken Archive of Jewish Music remembers Pete Seeger and his legacy in this short documentary on the song, "Tzena, Tzena, Tzena." A moving story of music's ability to transcend boundaries and communicate universally, the video captures a rare moment featuring Seeger alongside the song's composer, Issachar Miron, as they lead a performance of a new trilingual version of the song that includes verses in Arabic, as well as in Hebrew and English. The song's history stands as a testament to the values Seeger espoused through his music and through his unique way of being in the world. In the words of Woody Guthrie: "So Long, It's Been Good to Know You."
